Pressure advance



  • I wonder if you have to first turn on pressure advance in config.g before you can use it in say start gcode in a slicer?

    I would like to change pressure advance settings for different filaments and not have to change config.g each time. But wonder if it will work if not setup in config.g first.



  • You can adjust or turn pressure advance on and off at anytime. Even "on the fly" while printing a part.

    Adjust it through the DWC or if you have a paneldue adjust it in console.

    It can be added in a script to your slicer as well.



  • Also see https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Filaments to add the different pressure advance settings to each filament file you build.



  • So if I don't have any reference to pressure advance in config.g, it can be turned on with the m code at anytime.

    I think I saw something about Kepler pressure advance that said they had to turn it on in firmware to activate it, so that made me wonder if reprap worked the same way.

    Yes - and that also applies to all other G and M commands - accelerations, retractions, you name it - (very useful for tuning).

    All features of RRF except a very few experimental features are included in the standard firmware, and all can be activated at any time. There are rules for a few commands about what order commands must be run it, but that's all.



  • Thank you for all the answers.
